ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE

THE BEST KIND
OF DRUNK
IS WHEN YOU
CHUG A BOTTLE
OF WINE TO
YOUR FACE IN A MATTER
OF TWENTY MINUTES
AND PUT ON
AN ALBUM THAT
YOU'VE BEEN LISTENING TO
FOR WEEKS.
PUT YOUR FEET UP.
LAY BACK.
LET YOUR BODY
SOAK UP THE BOOZE
AND FEEL NUMB.
I CAME HOME
AND DID EXACTLY
THAT.
I COULDN'T FEEL
ANY PART OF MY BODY
AT ALL.
A SLOW SMILE SPREAD
ACROSS MY FACE.
I FELT LIKE A DANDELION
BEING BLOWN APART
ACROSS SHARP
BLADES
OF GRASS.
